♦ Yoga Nidra
We offer these three somatic therapies that use mind-body exercises to help release tension and stress that is negatively affecting physical and emotional well-being.
Somatic Healing is a body-centered therapy
that treats both mind and body.
Somatic therapies are also called psychosensory therapies. These therapies use mind-body exercises to help release tension and stress that is negatively affecting physical and emotional well-being. The stress of past emotional and traumatic events disrupts the central nervous system and can cause alterations in posture and breath patterns often involving the stress-strain cycle resulting in physical pain.
Somatic therapies help us develop an awareness of mind-body connection and teach specific techniques that can help release tension, anger, frustration and other disturbing emotions that are felt in the body. The goal of somatic healing is to free you from the stress and pain that is preventing you from fully participating in your life.
At Health Space LA we offer three different somatic therapy methods:
Havening, Yoga Nidra, and Reiki.

Improving the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, reduce pain, increase healing, and reduce other symptoms of pain and discomfort. Reiki helps restore the nervous system by engaging the parasympathetic nervous system which promotes rejuvenation. Reiki can help foster an awareness and connection with the physical body and how emotions relate to physical symptoms.
